Ever lose anything in the airport?

Police in Jeruslem reported that couple going on a European vacation remembered to bring their duty-free shopping and their 18 suitcases, but forgot their daughter at the airport.

The couple and their five children were late for a flight to Paris Sunday and made a mad dash to the gate. In the confusion, their daughter got lost. A policeman found her wandering around the terminal, crying for her mother.

Media reported today that the ultra-Orthodox Jewish parents, whose names were not released, didn't notice the child was missing until they were told in the air that she had been found at Ben-Gurion airport.

The three-year-old, accompanied by an airline staffer, took the next flight to Paris where she was reunited with her parents.

  1. I read about this today. Amazing!

    And thanks again for letting us blog on Petticoats and Pistols Friday, and for your nice comment on my blog. You're the best, Cheryl and can't wait for your christmas anthology.

  2. The truly, truly sad part? I could picture that happening to me. Super stress does strange things to people!

  3. This is my own personal nightmare come to life.

    I once left one of my children in the seat of a grocery store cart. I thought of her by the time I stowed the groceries and went running back and she just sat there patiently waiting for me like she was used to it.

    The little traitor could have acted like it was unusual.
